Yes but it would be very nice to have this natively enabled. The black and white background around the bar has always been a bit of an eyesore compared to ios which has a transparent background and hides the bar when an app is in use unlike one ui. The bar needs to be hidden when interacting with an app. This would remove the need to keep a background at the bottom of the screen instead, you would simply show the bar when swiping up from the bottom and start doing the gesture the user wants like going home or to the task manager. Not only would it look better but would also give a better open and close animation.
